I recently purchased a pci wireless n card for my desktop to access my campus network. The reception from my room to the AP is horrible though. I have found omni 9dbi antennas and 7dbi antennas on monoprice.com that would replace the 3 3dbi antennas on my NIC. Would these actually help with reception on my NIC or would they be more suited for the AP itself?

Gain is usually only good if both sides use it. We can't tell from your post is your RX is bad or TX is bad. As a general rule it helps out if in fact the signal is weak. There can be a lot of things that affect wave propagation. Without testing it can only be a guess that it may help.

I read it wrong and answer it wrong too. So get off my case you peanut.
